Default Why GG bran crispbread?

I looked through the "what's for dinner, snacks, etc; and continued to see GG bran crispbread, so I looked it up, thinking it was a LOW carb bread of some sort....... Well, it is not.

GG bran crispbread: svg size 2 crackers= 20gm wght/ 15g carbs.

Orowheat bread: 1 slice = 38g wght/ 18g carbs (more food, only 3 more gms carbs...cut a little off...=15)

Sara Lee wheat bread: 1 slice = 28 g wght/ 12g carbs (more food & LESS carbs)

So, my question is: WHY GG bran crispbread instead of 1 slice of wheat bread or other? It's also pretty expensive compared to bread!

thanks!

I have no idea. None of the above would be on my list of safe foods for me. And any form of wheat would definitely be out of the picture.

Me, too, only it's full-fat mayo for me, with some bacon grease also, spread on the meat slices.

I think it's because of the fiber content - if I remember correctly, the net carbs are significantly lower than bread. I've never tried them. I put my sandwich fillings (even peanut butter) between two cheese slices.
